I haven’t done an anime giveaway in a while, so when a package arrived from RightStuf, I figured it was just the thing.
Nozomi is re-releasing some popular out-of-print titles, so I thought I’d give away a couple of the attractive sets. So up for grabs is “Boogiepop Phantom: Complete TV Series” and “Martian Successor Nadesico: Complete Collection.”
For those unfamiliar with the titles, here are the official descriptions:
“Boogiepop Phantom”: Five years ago, a string of grisly murders shook the city to its core. Now terror has returned, and this time it has a name: Boogiepop. Everyone knows about Boogiepop: death incarnate, she stalks the night in search of fresh victims. Meet her, and you simply… vanish. In the darkness, glass shatters and time stands still. There’s something out there, and it’s coming closer. Are you safe? Contains 12 episodes.
“Martian Successor Nadesico”: The Earth, Moon, and Martian colonies are under alien attack, but the war against the Jovian Lizards has, so far, been nothing short of a series of disasters. Disgusted by the incompetence of Earth’s military, independent arms manufacturer Nergal builds its own space battleship and plans to launch a desperate offensive to save humanity. Due to a shortage of trained soldiers, however, they’ve assembled the most unorthodox crew to ever launch into orbit! With a pacifist cook turned unwilling mecha pilot and a ditsy admiral’s daughter in command, can this unprecedented gathering of geeks, misfits, and anime fans prevail against the Jovian menace? Contains episodes 1-26 of the TV series, the “Prince of Darkness” movie, and the “Gekigangar 3″ OVA! (OVA is sub-only.)
